Heidelberg Press Maintenance

The JTT Pressworks Maintenance Advantage

As any press crew knows, Heidelberg presses are complex machines that require maintenance to perform well. Over time, paper particles find their way into the press, the machine builds up dirt and its accumulation can cause premature wear.

To ensure the longest life of your press with the least downtime, operators should consider having the following printing press maintenance items completed monthly.

  • Clean delivery chain system to reduce grease and powder spray contamination
  • Grease mechanical items according to checklist to avoid premature mechanical failure
  • Air filters changed so air flow doesn’t suffer and performance is maximized
  • Central Air compressor oil change
  • A visual observation of hoses and proactive replacement of worn hoses
  • Roller maintenance and readjustment so that wear, tear and dirt do not cause misalignment.
